    UPDATE: We just met our first week goal of $5000! That means tomorrow, Friday, September 13 students get to dress in their favorite space gear (remember that normal dress code rules still apply).  Some ideas include the moon, stars, NASA, astronauts and planets.

    Remember to register your students for this year’s Fun Run being held on October 4th. We’re raising money to help fund our amazing art program, physical education, field trips, assemblies, classroom enrichment and much more. Help us reach our goal of $20,000!!
